Electric car rental scheme launched in London

Tower Hamlets becomes first place in UK to have pay-per-use electric vehicle club, in a move intended to help improve air quality

The UK’s first entirely electric pay-per-use car rental club was launched in Poplar, East London, by transport minister Baroness Susan Kramer yesterday (October 23).

The car club will see Renault Zoe and Renault Fluence vehicles coming to the London borough of Tower Hamlets to enable businesses and residents in the community to book and rent the electric cars for between an hour and up to several weeks 24 hours a day.

According to E-Car Club, which runs the scheme, each vehicle will help achieve a 50-5kg reduction in nitrous oxide emissions per year and a 1-2kg reduction in particulate matter emitted in urban areas.

The car club scheme was also praised by London Mayor Boris Johnson, which he said showed that his plan for an ultra-low emission zone in London was beginning to drive action.
